Tasmania is famous for its superb local produce, from its delicious cheeses to its wide selection of wines. An important element of your walking experience with Life’s an Adventure is the high-quality local food we provide each day. You’ll always find an abundance of food and options available. Glenn & Janaya have put an inspired Tasmanian menu together including wonderful Scottsdale Pork with Peach and Chardonnay sauce, Pear and Walnut Salad, local Salmon, Trevally and so much more.

We begin our walking adventure from Mt William National Park enjoying breathtaking, remote and untouched wilderness areas. Our hike will start with an introduction to Mt William National Park, a safety brief and lunch at Stumpies Bay. The first two kilometres of the walk is a scenic mix of pristine white sand beaches and granite outcrops where evidence of Aboriginal occupation can be seen in the dunes. From here you will enjoy some light rock hopping and secluded small bays. The Walk now opens out onto Cod Bay where you’ll stroll along 4kms of gorgeous sandy beach. This is a great opportunity to spread out and take in the views of Georges Rocks.

3 day walk Bay of Fires -Package details

One of the main reasons why we returned to the Company was the quality of the guiding. Barry is a consummate professional, always helpful and knowledgable. The meals were excellent - this has yet again impressed us. After a great days walking it was wonderful to return to cold drinks and excellent nibbles, followed by a superbly cooked dinner. Beachshack was excellent - A wonderful convivial place with everything we needed to enjoy the company of our new fellow trippers. A four-star lodge just would not have been the same.

Thought Barry - was a superb guide - really took the time to explain what we were seeing, and also made sure the group was held together and not walking too far apart from each other. The Beach Shack was fabulous. Food was great - well cooked and presented and a great range of variety. Very fresh. Loved the wines and the nibbles on returning after a day walking. Everything was to and above my expectation.

Barry was the perfect mix of enthusiastic, knowledgeable and quirky. Susan was great as a host and an amazing chef. Heaps and heaps of delicious food with plenty of options. Especially impressed with the accommodation of my need for a gluten-free diet. Fantastic. Beachshack was excellent. I think the way you have pitched it is perfect. You play down expectations a bit and then over deliver. Will recommend

Our guide; Barry was so full of local and interesting knowledge. Although we didn't call him Barry much; was Bob, Bazza etc. He was so lovely. The local produce was awesome and all our meals were prepared beautifully. We were really impressed with your tour; we will be looking for a new location with you next year.
